Mersa Virus

Were you looking for information about MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) Infection? Mersa virus is a common misspelling and variation of MRSA.
 
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is not caused by a virus. Rather, the illness is caused by a specific type of bacteria. Over the past several decades, infections with this strain of "staph" bacteria have escalated, from occurring mainly in people in hospitals and healthcare facilities, to occurring in otherwise healthy people in the community.
 
MRSA bacteria are spread through direct skin-to-skin contact or contact with shared items or surfaces that are infected with the bacteria. You can lower your risk of contracting this disease by washing your hands, showering promptly after exercising, and avoiding contact with other people's wounds.
